5:32 pm
metric so many use to judge an administration and how it has been moving from campaigning to governing, how do you think he is being judged in washington as we come up upon that 100 day mark. >> well, first of all presidents hate the 100 day mark because it started with fdr and he had a big emergency that gave a sense of urgency to everything happening in washington so you could get things done more quickly then in today's partisan much more slow moving washington. so, president obama didn't like it, president trump doesn't either in part because while he has had success, naming someone to the supreme court, big success that will have an impact on american life for probably 20, 30, 40 years, and he has been able to do some things through executive action much in the same way president obama did when he was stopped by congress but president trump has not had a big achievement through congress and his travel ban has been twice held up by the courts. so he is bumping in the other branches of government and that is frustrating to him and
5:33 pm
also, the measurement of the president is kind of a funny thing. it is up to the voters, and opposition, and your allies, and the pundits. but in this case president trump has set a high bar for himself with all of the things he was going to get done so he is being measured by his high expectations that he set when he talk about winning so much, people would get tired of it. >> that is right. coming up on sunday we will have three people who play key rolls in the 2016 election. senator marco rubio, governor john kasich. i know you cannot get into what you will talk to them about all of them but what are the themes you are hoping to cover with those men. >> well, all three ran for president. we're in this moment of the de stabilization in politics where president trump is kind of his own person, he doesn't fit into an idealology particularly and that is destabilized the republican party a little bit. john kasich is basically, in his book and in his campaign and in the way he approaches
5:34 pm
government a very different kind of republican. marco rubio is a very different republican when it comes to foreign policy. these are different visions that are still alive in our politics and being debated and bernie sanders is in the thick of the debate in the democratic party which is trying to figure out what it believes and is really having a lot of clashes, bernie sanders was in on a unity tour right now with the head of the democratic party but clear from even that tour that there is not a lot of unity in the democratic party, except in opposition to donald trump but you cannot build a party necessarily on that. we want to talk to him about what idea really are the center of the democratic party but he will reminus, he is not a democrat. >> that is exactly right, fascinating stuff. we will be watching on sunday. thanks for being with us tonight. >> sure thing. you can watch john dickerson, this sunday and every sunday on face the nation and it happens at 10:30 3 former president barack obama is set to make his first
